About this audiobook

In this revised and updated edition, learn how the biblical gift of "The Blessing" is key to a child’s self-worth and emotional well-being. Children of every age long for the gift of The Blessing—the unconditional love and approval that comes from a healthy relationship with their parents.

This life-changing gift for Christian parents and their children, essential for instilling a deep sense of worthiness and unshakable emotional well-being, contains five essential elements:

  • Meaningful touch
  • A spoken message
  • Attaching high value
  • Picturing a special future
  • An active commitment

Offering solid, practical advice and a fresh perspective on making this gift a bigger part of our families, The Blessing powerfully communicates these biblically based elements as necessary to prepare children for positive future relationships, including their relationship with a loving God.

New to this updated edition are:

  • Giving The Blessing to others in your circle of influence
  • Practical application tools and stories of how this is lived out
  • Insight and help for those who didn’t receive The Blessing
  • How to create a lifestyle of blessing others

If you have missed out on the approval of your parents, the final chapters are for you. They include help for those who grew up without their own parent's blessing and provide ideas for blessing events.

Dive deeper into The Blessing with interactive exercises and discussion questions available in the audiobook companion PDF download.
